Title: results as we stand now
Post by: Outer Element on May 05, 2011, 12:14:15 AM
Here are the results I got from this website: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp. For the questions that there wasn't a clear consensus on, I answered what I perceived as similar personality traits the same way in the same test, and opposite traits in the opposite way. This involved some judgment calls, so if anyone wants to try taking the test and finagle with the questionable answers, I can send you the results of the survey as of about 10pm, EST.     

test 1:

Your Type is ISFP
Introverted   Sensing   Feeling   Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
56   1   62   44


Qualitative analysis of your type formula

 You are:
?   moderately expressed introvert
?   slightly expressed sensing personality
?   distinctively expressed feeling personality
?   moderately expressed perceiving personality


test 2:

Your Type is INFP
Introverted   Intuitive   Feeling   Perceiving
Strength of the preferences %
78   12   62   22

Qualitative analysis of your type formula

 You are:

well done dude!! ;D
I would say INFP goes pretty well with the rest of the dudes on the forum who took the test themselves.
IMO I think we can be comfortable with The Dude being INFP.
Am I wrong?...Ok then...

A big Thank You to Outer Element!

Portrait of an INFP - Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving

The Idealist


As an INFP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things according to how you feel about them, or how they fit into your personal value system. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in primarily via your intuition.

INFPs, more than other iNtuitive Feeling types, are focused on making the world a better place for people. Their primary goal is to find out their meaning in life. What is their purpose? How can they best serve humanity in their lives? They are idealists and perfectionists, who drive themselves hard in their quest for achieving the goals they have identified for themselves

INFPs are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP's value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life. The goal at the end of the path is always the same - the INFP is driven to help people and make the world a better place.

Generally thoughtful and considerate, INFPs are good listeners and put people at ease. Although they may be reserved in expressing emotion, they have a very deep well of caring and are genuinely interested in understanding people. This sincerity is sensed by others, making the INFP a valued friend and confidante. An INFP can be quite warm with people he or she knows well.

INFPs do not like conflict, and go to great lengths to avoid it. If they must face it, they will always approach it from the perspective of their feelings. In conflict situations, INFPs place little importance on who is right and who is wrong. They focus on the way that the conflict makes them feel, and indeed don't really care whether or not they're right. They don't want to feel badly. This trait sometimes makes them appear irrational and illogical in conflict situations. On the other hand, INFPs make very good mediators, and are typically good at solving other people's conflicts, because they intuitively understand people's perspectives and feelings, and genuinely want to help them.

INFPs are flexible and laid-back, until one of their values is violated. In the face of their value system being threatened, INFPs can become aggressive defenders, fighting passionately for their cause. When an INFP has adopted a project or job which they're interested in, it usually becomes a "cause" for them. Although they are not detail-oriented individuals, they will cover every possible detail with determination and vigor when working for their "cause".

When it comes to the mundane details of life maintenance, INFPs are typically completely unaware of such things. They might go for long periods without noticing a stain on the carpet, but carefully and meticulously brush a speck of dust off of their project booklet.

INFPs do not like to deal with hard facts and logic. Their focus on their feelings and the Human Condition makes it difficult for them to deal with impersonal judgment. They don't understand or believe in the validity of impersonal judgment, which makes them naturally rather ineffective at using it. Most INFPs will avoid impersonal analysis, although some have developed this ability and are able to be quite logical. Under stress, it's not uncommon for INFPs to mis-use hard logic in the heat of anger, throwing out fact after (often inaccurate) fact in an emotional outburst.

INFPs have very high standards and are perfectionists. Consequently, they are usually hard on themselves, and don't give themselves enough credit. INFPs may have problems working on a project in a group, because their standards are likely to be higher than other members' of the group. In group situations, they may have a "control" problem. The INFP needs to work on balancing their high ideals with the requirements of every day living. Without resolving this conflict, they will never be happy with themselves, and they may become confused and paralyzed about what to do with their lives.

INFPs are usually talented writers. They may be awkard and uncomfortable with expressing themselves verbally, but have a wonderful ability to define and express what they're feeling on paper. INFPs also appear frequently in social service professions, such as counselling or teaching. They are at their best in situations where they're working towards the public good, and in which they don't need to use hard logic.

INFPs who function in their well-developed sides can accomplish great and wonderful things, which they will rarely give themselves credit for. Some of the great, humanistic catalysts in the world have been INFPs.

Does that mean it's finally over and we can stop arguing about how the Dude would answer these?

I stand by my first assumption, I don't think he'd bother wasting his time, and go and do something more interesting like a J or go bowling.

IMHO.

;D

Yeah, it's over for now. Maybe we'll look at it again in a few months IF we get more votes. Would like to see at least a few dozen votes with a clear consensus on each one.

If not then fuck it...we'll go bowling instead! 8)

Leave it alone man....just leave it alone dude

The Dudes the Dude....he can be INFP or ET or even ADHD I don't give a hogs arse!

The Dude has probably been all the types and archetypes in the psychology world....according to what time of day it is....he can change his answer as often as he wants and he can be as many people as he wants to in the space of a few hours.

But the essence of Dudeness will never change....his cool...his manner his being, will only ever be the dude.

Questions? 72 of them no less.? He would NEVER take this test....

Hope that qualifies as answering the question in the way I think the dude would.

Peace.

I definitely figured the Dude for an FP subtype.  Thanks to everyone who put in the work on this one!

INFP is pretty much what I expected.  I just hope everyone had (and if they do it in the future, has) fun with it. 

I thought it was fun to try to get in to his head, but I can see why not everyone else would be interested. Different oat sodas for different folks, or something like that.

WWDD
What Would Duder Do?

I'm not sure he could be bothered to answer these, unless you had an open bar.

Did we establish the hypothetical sistuation of whether the questioning body had an open bar?

If not, I call all these results null and void and we start over :)

Being pretty new here, I'm just starting to get familiar with the Dudespaper and other writings on this site. I just came across this while browsing:

http://dudespaper.com/dude-university/psychological-analysis-of-the-dude/

The writer took the Meyers-Briggs on behalf of the Dude and came up with INFP. Go figure. Anyway, good article with a couple of statements I want to respond to. Maybe later when inspiration strikes.

Holy Shit! I did not know that was on there! Good Find!
Well that pretty much nails it i guess. He found The Dude to be INFP and some 18 months later so did we!
Guess it's time to lay back with an oat soda and smoke em if you got em! ;D

Great find dude! 8)

So what we're finding out, is that this was an exercise in complete futility ...and you broke the board doing it! I am INFP as I'm sure the majority of the dudes on here are...of course we are....we're fucking Dudes man!

Let this whole thing die man...lay it to rest...Good night sweet Prince etc....

It's on record I was opposed to this shit from the start and I was right....

Peace dudes... :)

I do not think it was futile at all. We confirmed what was found by someone else before instead of just taking someone else's word for it. And we introduced a few other dudes to the Myers-Briggs test.
All in all I found it rather interesting.
And now the board is back to normal. Nothing was fucked here dude! 8)

I agree. Only one person that we know of had previously classified the Dude as INFP and we corroborated that.

I can understand if this wasn't your thing, and am aware that it was not most dudes' favorite thing to take 72 test questions. I resisted it for a while because I knew it would take some time. But when I did finally decide to do it, it was pretty cool to see, as well as put together the results. Not being INFP on three counts may have something to do with that, but there's room for all kinds of dudes. Am I wrong?

I'm INFJ, which is not that much different than INFP. Actually, I prefer INFJ, but that's just me. 8^)

I think what we really discovered is that a few dudes had fun, and a few dudes didn't.  Go figure, sounds like life to me.

You're already a dude...please don't take the test here man....please!?  :o :o 8)

I don't think the Dude is really an introvert or an extrovert, he's cool on his own or with other people.

Post by: milnie on November 12, 2012, 04:08:51 PM
It's just more labels dudes, more cages with locked doors. I don't think the dude would abide with that. Live with your own perceptions dudes, not someone else's. IMHO

ISFP here - using

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

Introvert(56%)  Sensing(12%)  Feeling(34%)  Perceiving(66%)

    You have moderate preference of Introversion over Extraversion (56%)
    You have slight preference of Sensing over Intuition (12%)
    You have moderate preference of Feeling over Thinking (34%)
    You have distinct preference of Perceiving over Judging (66%)

I generally agree.

As for the education part, 'Organized education is difficult for the majority of ISFPs, and many drop out before finishing secondary education' - I went all the way up to university studies. I think my disability proved a bit helpful in this case. When your sports options are limited and your physical education teachers are afraid to teach you anything (real case), you tend to sit your ass down and learn some abstract things. Which I am recently trying to balance with more practical approach. And bodybuilding, where doing things slowly is a virtue, otherwise you will not be able to walk like a human being the next day, but your muscles are working hard.

I think the fact that there were both yes and no answers to most of the dude profile questions means there is no single profile for a dude, still some answers are a bit more popular. And that is what we were trying to find out here. Creating a totally fixed pattern would not allow for any change or flow, Taoist way. Instead of being afraid to close the whole thing to extraverted people, just send some message about it to your extraverted dude friends.
